Picnic at Boxhill Park

My friend wanted a relaxing day off to relieve himself from stress at work. He decided to organise a day out to Boxhill, Surrey, and have a small hike with a picnic.

As it was a Sunday, travelling from London to the countryside was slightly a pain since there were railworks going on; I also had made some bad decisions on which trains to catch which caused me to be late. Oh well, at least I got there in the end!

Sunlight thorough the leaves

We drove to Boxhill from Purley station which took about 20 minutes. When we arrived we saw a lovely view of the town below.

Munching on lunch

We had croissants with ham and cheese, BLT baguette, sausage rolls, profiteroles, crisps, peanuts and iced tea. It was a lovely picnic and only cost us a fiver each!

The hike takes you around Boxhill park and towards the stepping stone trail. Lots of people took their children and dogs out on the warm summers day.

Also found a cute little butterfly

After our hour and a half hike down and up the hill we ended up buying some ice cream to satisfy our stomachs. Mmm.

I scream ice cream!!!

I would really love to visit Boxhill again and possibly the lavender gardens that was close by too.

What have you done to have a relaxing day out?

With love,
Kekidoll xoxo

    That sounds like a great way to spend the day! It definitely sounds relaxing to have a picnic and take a hike :) When I want to have a relaxing day, I usually go the super lazy route, haha. I stay home and play video games. If I have one out, then I like to hit up a few food trailers and get a bit at each :)

    • oooo that does sound like a fun day out for me too! I love eating food ^^

  • Sounds like a lovely outing once you got there. Picnics are always nice and then hiking is also fun. Yesterday we took the kids to a park where they also have hiking trails. We went late in the evening so we didn’t get to hike. We did see deer!

    • Oh hiking is good fun with the right company! ^^ I do love the great outdoors :) Shame you didn’t get to hike though, would have been lovely! I haven’t seen a deer in a while! I usually see them when I visit mum since she lives near forests :9

    It’s great tou had fun on your picnic. Sometimes it’s great to leave the city and get some fresh air.

  • It sounds like you had a lovely day. I’ve always wanted to have a picnic, especially if I’m going to take a hike. It seems like a perfect day. Do some physical activity and then have a wonderful picnic :)

  • Sounds like a very lovely day, I haven’t been out for a picnic, in about two years.
    My idea of a relaxing day, is hanging out at home, junk food, PJ’s and watching movies, that’s when I’m feeling super lazy ha ha :)

    • Sounds like a good lazy day in for me!

  • Sounds like a glorious day at Boxhill Park =)
